Highlights from the First Year

I know it may seem trivial to some of you that my blog has made it to one year, but honestly I am still amazed that I've reached this point. When I first started this blog, I thought it was just going to be a hobby I started to kill some time (I was on vacation when I started this blog and had a lot of down time) and that I wouldn't get very many views and that eventually I would just forget to write and the blog would kind of fade away. Boy, was I wrong! I started getting maybe 10 or 12 views a day and I thought that was amazing, and then I started getting my first comments and  that was enough encouragement to continue writing my little posts. I had originally only meant to write maybe 8 or 10 posts a month about 2 posts/1 day a week, but as the readership kept growing, I knew my blog had to keep growing as well. So I kept coming up with new ideas. First it was posting about sales, and it moved to posting balms I've been eyeing, balms I've been using, etc until I was posting a minimum of 7 posts/6 days a week! I also never thought I would get sponsors for this little blog of mine, I think I was near tears when I got my first sponsor (ForGoodnessGrape). I am grateful for everything that has happened on this blog, all of my interactions with you all, every comment, every e-mail. I'm happy that there are people out there who actually want to read these little posts of mine.

I wanted to share some of the highlights from this past year with you guys as I'm still in awe of this 1 year milestone.

    1. You're welcome! I will try my best to keep bringing balms from new shops and from old favorites!

      It was one of my main goals when starting this blog to share with everyone which balms were worth trying!
